  • Immersive 5G Near-Zero Latency Network

      unist_com [From left: Kyunghan Lee, Hyun Jong Yang, Hyoil Kim, Changhee Joo] 5G mobile will be here by 2020. Remote surgery, cloud streaming gaming, drones, and robots will be all envisioned in 5G to bring better access and life-changing futuristic services to many. 5G will support 1,000-fold gain in capacity, hyper-connections for billion devices, and a 10Gb/s individual user experience capable of extremely low latency and response time. In particular, the demand for real-time immersive applications such as mission-critical remote control, remote robotic surgery, and interactive cloud gaming service is rapidly increasing. Current communication and network technologies, however, have their innate limits on the latency, which is way-beyond the requirement of immersive applications.

    The UNIST research team, composed of Changhee Joo, Hyoil Kim, Kyunghan Lee, and Hyun Jong Yang, took a first step toward near-zero end-to-end latency, which propels us to commercialization of 5G, by starting a five-year research project “Research on Near-Zero Latency Network for 5G Immersive Service,” funded by the ministry of ICT and future planning, as of May 2015.

  • Hyun Jong Yang et al. publish a journal in IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology: "Multi-User Overhearing for Cooperative Two-Way Multi-Antenna Relays”

    TVT authorssystemOverhearing at users can increase the total data rate in two-way relay networks” Chunguo Li (Southeast Univ.), Hyun Jong Yang (UNIST), Fan Sun (Stanford Univ.), John M. Cioffi (Stanford Univ.), and Luxi Yang (Southeast Univ.) got acceptance for the paper ” Multi-User Overhearing for Cooperative Two-Way Multi-Antenna Relays” in IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology (IF: 2.642) on June 2015. In this study, they showed that the data rate of the two-way relay network can be improved by allowing one user to overhear the signal transmitted by the other user. In particular, multiple relays equipped with multiple antennas are considered to further enhance the performance, which constitutes a cooperative multi-antenna relay network. Precoding matrices at the relays are derived in pursuit of minimizing the weighted mean square error.  Simulation results show that the proposed scheme shows not only lower MSE but also higher achievable sum-rate than existing cooperative relaying schemes.      
  • AiSLab aids KRISO for measurement campaign: “Shallow-water Acoustic Variability Experiment 2015”

    Logo Untitled[Figure: Underwater Acoustic Communication, *WHOI.edu] The Shallow-water Acoustic Variability Experiment 2015 (SAVEX15) is a joint underwater communication measurement campaign led by University of California San Diego and Korea Research Institute of Ships & Ocean Engineering (KRISO).  The measurement will be conducted in shallow water (100m deep) in the Northern East Sea, ~100km southwest of Jeju Island, South Korea, over the period 14-29 May, 2015. The goal of SAVEX15 is to obtain acoustic and environmental data appropriate for studying the couple of oceanography, acoustics, and underwater communications in the Northern East Sea. The AiSLab aided the KRISO in designing measurement scenarios and generating transmit signals for several promising technologies, which are cutting-edge state-of-the-arts even in the ground communication, such as orthogonal frequency division multiple-access (OFDMA), multi-directional relaying, multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO), and generalized FDMA (GFDMA). The application of underwater communication ranges from surveillance to resource mining, e.g.,  storing liquid carbon dioxide, mining methane hydrate, underwater monitoring (military defense, tsunami, earthquake), and etc [Figure]. The design of underwater communication, however, is challenging compared to the ground communication due to highly limited bandwidth (sonar radio), long distances but slow propagation, multi-hop relay network, significant time delay, time-varying frequency offset/Doppler shifts, and so on. Therefore, a careful consideration of these difficulties should be taken in designing transceivers. From this measurement campaign, the AiSLab and KRISO will look into the feasibility of the aforementioned techniques, which are carefully tailored for the underwater environment, and will pursue possible performance improvement.  
  • AiSLab Hosts Hyundai Autoever: "Future Vehicular to X (V2X) Communications"

    C-ITS[Figure: Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS), *한국지능형교통체계협회] The AiSLab hosted Hyundai Autoever and gave a talk about “Next Generation Wireless Access in Vehicular Environment (WAVE)” on Apr. 28, 2015. The AiSLab group presented a brief summary on the conventional WAVE technologies including IEEE 802.11p and V2X in 3GPP, and overview of the ongoing research projects in the US and Europe. In particular, PHY/MAC details of 802.11p were covered and several potential but critical technical issues that may happen in a very dense future vehicular network were addressed. The AiSLab then shared group’s technical vision towards the future Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) [Figure], which is the Korea  version of the next generation vehicular network being envisioned by the Korea government. In this future network, possible services include not only the broadcasting services regarding public safety or emergency information, but also the two-way transactions such as tolling and internet access. The Hyundai Autoever, the research institute in the Hyundai group studying the infrastructure of the C-ITS, also shared their long-term vision on this project.
  • Hyun Jong Yang and Hyunmyung Oh give a special invited talk: "5G Multiple-Access: Latency vs. Spectral Efficiency”

    JCCI2015From Apr. 15 to 17, the 25th Joint Conference on Communications and Information (JCCI) was held in Buyeo, Korea. Prof. Hyun Jong Yang and Hyunmyung Oh were invited to give a special talk “5G Multiple-Access: Latency vs. Spectral Efficiency.” In this talk, a new mega trend in the mobile communication toward ultra-low latency was introduced with future killer applications. To achieve the ultimate goal of less than 10ms of the end-to-end latency, problems of the current multiple-access technologies were addressed. In particular, one of the promising multiple-access technologies achieving very low latency, the generalized frequency division multiple-access (GFDMA), is analyzed in two aspects: latency and spectral efficiency. Preliminary results showed that there exists a trade-off between the two aspects.
  • AISLab has a kick-off meeting with ETRI: "Small Cell Interference Management"

      Researchers from one of the core research groups in ETRI (Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute, Daejeon, Korea) visited UNIST on Apr. 10, 2015, to discuss the research project on small cell interference reduction for next generation communication. In this meeting, prof. Yang presented a comprehensive review on past year’s achievements and proposed a research plan for the second year.

     In the precedent project, AiSLab and ETRI achieved 20% enhancement of the system throughput by reducing inter-cell interference in a dense small cell environment. In the successive year, it is expected to achieve 30% higher throughput compared to the previous year, and to study interference management algorithms for further interference mitigation under realistic constraints.
